The Department of State has just released the February 2012 Visa Bulletin. The February Visa Bulletin is the fifth Visa Bulletin of US Fiscal Year 2012.

This Visa Bulletin again showed much improvement in the EB-2 categories. The China and India EB-2 numbers jumped another 12 months, and now stand at January 2010. In the last two months these EB-2 numbers have improved almost two years. The February Visa Bulletin notes that:

China and India: Reports from U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) indicate that the rate of new filings for adjustment of status in recent months has been extremely low. This fact has required the continued rapid forward movement of the cut-off date, in an attempt to generate demand and maximize number use under the annual limit. Once the level of new filings or USCIS processing increases significantly, it will be necessary to slow or stop the movement of the cut-off. Readers are once again advised that an eventual need to retrogress the cut-off date is also a distinct possibility.

The EB-3 categories had much more modest gains -- a few weeks in all instances.

    Because of the expense, her boss wants to prperae and submit her I-140 and I-485 instead of hiring an immigration attorney.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~Her boss is making a HUGE mistake. Heart bypass surgery is expensive too, but I'll be the boss would see a real doctor no matter the expense. It's the same with this matter. -7Was this answer helpful?

    The U.S. State Department has just released the July 2012 Visa Bulletin which is the tenth Visa Bulletin for the FY2012 fiscal year. The major headline in the upcoming month's bulletin is the introduction of a cutoff date for the EB-2 ROW category and the continued unavailability in the EB-2 India and China categories (which is expected to continue for the next two months).
